The Friends of the Library are looking for a few more donations for the Reading in the Garden Basket. Suggested donations include potting soil, fertilizer, gardening tools, gloves, large pot, etc. Thank you in advance for your donations. Tickets will be sold for this basket and the drawing will occur at the Authors Luncheon on April 1st.
Also the library is looking for watercolor paper, children’s Crayola markers and special neon and bright colored Sharpie markers. The children who use these markers love them! If you never seen the crafts that are made at the library during the story time sessions, you should stop in and watch. The children are fun to see in action!
All donations are welcome and much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
